Come on in, cosy up by the fire, and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa...the message that all great hosts and hostesses want to give to their guests. Especially when it’s wet and chilly outside. With summer far behind us, it’s time to head indoors to hide from the elements and find new autumn wallpaper ideas! For many people, autumn is the most magical time of year. With falling leaves and golden landscapes, there’s always an excuse to curl up in your best slippers and loungewear. It’s such a wonderful season to embrace.
To make your home an inviting refuge from the cold, here are some lovely wallpaper designs that will add warmth, depth and ambience to any room. Take a look at our gorgeous autumn wallpaper ideas below.
Let brown take centre stage in your living area
People have very conflicted ideas about brown in interior design. Yet when it's done right, it’s one of the most effective colours for creating warmth and ambience. To me, brown is a comfort colour, making it one of our most perfect autumn wallpaper ideas.
It's the type of colour that makes everyone feel nice and fuzzy inside. From mixing luxury leathers with cream fabric contrasts to matching beige with nudes and warm terracotta, there are so many ways you can make this colour work.
This gorgeous Brown Grey mural by Katy Smeets is a contemporary take on earthy interiors. Like many of our independent artists' designer wallpapers, this gorgeous brown mural is bursting with personality and individuality. If you want something a bit different, these spectacular autumnal colours will create a talking point that sits well in any living or dining space.
Paint the colours of autumn with an abstract mural
No need to get the paintbrushes out just yet. Whether you’re a creative soul or downright terrible at art, anyone can achieve this look for their home. This calming Mountain View wallpaper is available as a paste the wall or peel and stick wallpaper, making it easy to transform any room. It features ambient colours combining deep-plum, burnt-orange, golden-yellow and muffled-green. All these beautiful tones are set in a muted palette so that it blends with your existing interiors.

Choose autumn wallpaper ideas with a botanical touch
There’s simply no escaping botanicals this year when it comes to autumn wallpaper ideas. One of our trend predictions for 2020 is the rise of the ‘indoor garden’. It looks like nature and interiors will be intertwined for a long time! There’s also a lot of focus on leaves, particularly close-ups in prints.
While fresh palm and banana leaf patterns make us think of tropical places, autumn is more about the less glamorous foliage in design. We want humble trees and shrubberies that we all know and love from our beloved cold, wet and drizzly Britain. We’re talking about the deciduous leaves such as the Elm, Poplar, Birch and Willow. These are the pretty botanicals that we’re familiar with. The ones that turn to golden yellow and brown once summer ends. Our stunning Garden Sage wallpaper by Carol Robinson celebrates all of these varieties. It also works well in the summer giving you the perfect all-year-round mural.
Autumn wallpaper ideas to warm your cockles
Embrace the golden hues of autumn with this spectacular Camo Yellow mural by Valentina Harper. It brings together deep, mustard-yellow tones and golden shades of autumnal woods. This intricately patterned wallpaper looks expensive and oozes charm. At the same time, it gives you a sense of individuality in the home.
Like many of Valentina Harper’s murals, this design features an incredible fusion of pattern work and nature. Finish your room with a soft rug and some high-end fabrics for an inviting, come-in-and-sit-down kind of feel.
Experiment with warm-toned geometrics
Geos add a fun, interesting and retro touch to any room. Whether your furnishings are influenced by mid-century modern art or simple Scandi trends, a geometric wallpaper can help tie everything together. Especially if your walls are looking a bit bare.
For minimalists who want to warm up their living space for autumn and winter, this Inner Space mural is perfect as a feature wall. It will be a great talking point for your guests and a quick and easy solution for turning up the temperature in chilly weather.
Autumn wallpaper ideas to help turn up the heat
Autumn marks the start of the wood-burning season. If you have a real fire at home, the cold and rainy weather gives you the perfect excuse to light up that tinder. If you don’t have a log burner, you can still achieve that cosy look with our striking Pile of Firewood wall mural. This realistic log pile wallpaper works well as a feature wall where your fire might be. It will warm up your room instantly with its rich, dark tones. If you’re dealing with blank, white-washed walls in a minimalist apartment, this wood effect mural will really add depth and cosiness.
If you love these dark colours, you can achieve a similar appearance with our fantastic Bookcase wallpapers. This is a great way to create that classic full bookshelf effect without the dust! Or why not explore our full range of Wood Effect murals that are all made to measure?
Create a stunning autumn forest scene
This colourful Out of Love mural is the ultimate escape and a way of bringing the outdoors in when it’s just too cold to leave the house. This is the season to celebrate all the rich, bold and vibrant colours of nature, so forest scene wallpapers are just fabulous at this time of year. Not only do they provide a sense of escapism for those who hate being cooped up for too long, but natural landscapes can actually soothe the soul and help to improve mental wellbeing.
If that wasn’t enough to get you rummaging for your tape measure, there’s also the added bonus of depth of field which can transform a small, tight space into something that feels much roomier. That’s ideal for anyone who likes to entertain and have people over.
